Walking the course is invaluable. One thing that helped me tons, was working the first session and driving the second. I got to watch where others were making mistakes and focused on those spots. I've only been 2 or 3 times and they've been a blast (especially the rain one!!). I've given up trying to do a smoking fast 1st lap and let that be my 'track learning' lap. I do it like I was driving Ms. Daisy....then I keep stepping up my pace lap after lap till the last lap when I'm hoping someone will come up to me and say "if that wasn't your last lap of the day, we'd throw you out of here!"
